Coconut oil is excellent for cooking.

I eat it and put it in my porridge for breakfast.

Fat is not bad for you.

Trans Fat is bad for you. Trans fat is not really fat it is a poison.

since its natural, its good for you and the medium chain fatty acids in it are a terrific source of energy. the only other food with similarly medium chain fatty acids is dairy fat.

From what I hear coconut oil is actually the healthiest oil to cook with and the only one that won't be bad for you when heated up. So yeah I'd use it.

No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

It's a different kind of saturated fat called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). It's perfectly fine to consume it.

I know that might sound obvious but Sunflower oil dosen't taste of sunflowers and sesame oil dosen't taste of sesasme seeds etc.. the Coconut taste is very strong which makes it very palatable.

I think he meant fats that are not normally saturated, that have been artificially saturated. These cannot be handled by the liver.

Yea the partially hydrogenated fats they put in processed foods.

They add Hydrogen onto normal fat so that it does not spoil.

It makes it last longer like a preservative because the hydrogen takes up a space on the fat chain molecule. So that it cannot randomly pickup something else.

But doing this makes the fat solid at room temp. Like lard and it makes it much worse for the human body then lard.

Its not REAL strong. For somthing mild like eggs I prefer grape seed oil or butter. A well seasoned pan grilled or say Montreal rub steak is just fine when grilled with coconut oil.

 Quoting: AlcoholicRunner


Hydrogenated vegetable oils are unsaturated fats that are artificially processed to make them saturated. That way they will be solid at room temperature and can be used to replace butter, etc, to make cheap processed food. One problem with artificially saturated fats is that the process to hydrogenate them creates trans fats, which cause diseases and dysfunction in our bodies.

Coconut oil does contain saturated fat, but it's natural, not artificial. Also, saturated/unsaturated isn't the only important trait of a fat. What is also important to how a fat functions in our bodies is whether it's long chain, short chain or medium chain. As some others have already posted, coconut oil contains a lot of medium chain fatty acids (MCTs), which are very good for you.

Medium chain fatty acids are digested very efficiently and are converted directly by the liver to usable energy.

ALER ALERT...you are being tricked by big business. Coconut oil is a saturated fat and will clog your arteries. Get it, saturated, the very stuff that gives you high cholesterol and clogged arteries. Stay away from fat---period...clean carbohydrates and sugar from fresh natural fruit. The ministry of propaganda is telling everybody now that it is good for you....to make big$$$$$$$ and to slowly depopulate socity.
